    Kid Rock Steps Up in a Big Way to Help Marine Vet Charged in Subway Death

    Published on

    Kid Rock has done more than any other individual to aid Marine veteran Daniel Penny in his defense against manslaughter charges in the death of serial offender Jordan Neely.

    Penny, along with two other men, restrained Neely in what appeared to be a rear naked neck hold. Before District Attorney Alvin Bragg filed manslaughter charges against Penny last week, however, a campaign to assist him with legal expenses had already begun.

    The GiveSendGo campaign has raised over $2.1 million, and Kid Rock, whose actual name is Robert Ritchie, contributed $5,000 with the message “Mr. Penny is a hero. Alvin Bragg is a scumbag. Kid Rock.”

    The campaign has pledged to donate all funds to Penny’s legal fees, with any remaining funds going to mental health causes in New York City.

    Neely pleaded guilty to attempting to abduct a 7-year-old child and had more than 40 arrests on his record.

    Bragg has filed criminal charges against a white ex-Marine who held a black man with a history of violence and mental health issues in a chokehold on the New York City transit earlier this month after he made threatening gestures.

    Daniel Penny, age 24, is expected to surrender to authorities on Friday in connection with the death of Jordan Neely. Bragg’s office made the decision to prosecute Penny, according to NBC 4 in New York.

    CeFaan Kim, an ABC correspondent, stated on Twitter that Penny will be charged with Second-Degree Manslaughter.

    Wednesday, the medical examiner of New York City verified that Neely’s death was caused by a “chokehold.” The M.E. classified the incident as a “homicide,” but additional legal proceedings would be required to establish intent or liability.

    Penny’s attorneys issued a statement late last week regarding the death, stating that their client “was involved in a tragic incident on the New York City Subway that resulted in Jordan Neely’s death.”

    The statement, which was issued by Raiser and Kenniff, P.C., continued:

    We would first like to extend our condolences to Mr. Neely’s loved ones on behalf of Daniel Penny. Mr. Neely had a documented history of violent and erratic behavior, which was presumably the result of a persistent and untreated mental illness. When Mr. Neely began threatening Daniel Penny and the other passengers aggressively, Daniel and the other passengers acted to defend themselves until assistance arrived. Daniel had no intention of harming Mr. Neely and was unable to predict his untimely demise.

    For too long, those suffering from mental illness have been treated with indifference. We hope that out of this awful tragedy will come a new commitment by our elected officials to address the mental health crisis on our streets and subways. CONTINUE READING…
